None of those crimes would exist were it not for the Special Counsel's frankly abusive probe.
So far, despite IG reports and firings at FBI and DOJ due to lying to investigators, no one has actually been indicted, much less convicted. There truly seems to be a double standard in operation here. We can only hope that when the IG report does come out, indictments and convictions from Durham will soon follow.
When you send me an email claiming to be a new gun blogger writing as a side project to his day job, and your email claims to be written to me personally and appears to be plain text, yet has both text and html parts, and the html parts include web tracking bugs...
... you're probably lying about being a new gun blogger writing directly to me about your side project blog, and are actually just spamming me to beg for a link as part of a marketing campaign.
You'd do better being honest about the commercial nature of your request.
OCR systems use dictionaries to aid their recognition of words and letters. "Corney" (rn) is a dictionary word, despite the capitalization. Comey is not a dictionary word, just a proper name. The rn combinations that are properly recognized are all in dictionary words.
Obviously, OCR preferred the dictionary word Corney to the proper name Comey. And in the revised version, someone noticed and corrected it, because you can do manual corrections to an OCR process like that.
Does the Page FISA fraud invalidate all of the Mueller warrants too?
Remember, all of those warrants were based on the idea that Trump was colluding with Russia. And all of the Trump-Russia collusion was based on the hoax dossier.
Doesn't that invalidate not just the main FISA warrant against Carter Page and the Trump campaign, but also all the Mueller investigation warrants? At a minimum, those applied for after the dossier was known to be a hoax.
There are so many wrong lessons here I hardly know where to start. There's a kid who checks that his mom is peacefully reading a book, then goes upstairs to (presumably) her room and opens her chest of drawers to find a gun (very much not safely stored). Without checking whether it is loaded or if a round is in the chamber or the condition of the safety if the gun has one, he puts it into his backpack without a holster or other protective covering and takes it to school with him before pulling it out of his backpack and putting it on the teacher's desk and asking the teacher to get rid of it because "he doesn't want to have a gun in the house."
Leaving aside the many insanely unsafe gun handling practices in this propaganda video, he's stealing a gun from his parents and taking it to school in order to turn it in to someone who (just based on profession!) likely has no idea how to handle it safely or dispose of it legally. Not to mention the school itself is a gun free zone. So. How many laws did this kid violate?
1) Felony theft of a firearm. Most gun felonies are 10 year federal crimes. 2) Gun-Free School Zone laws. $10,000 fine and 5 years. 3) Carrying concealed without a license, depending on state laws. 4) Illegal transfer of a firearm without a background check, depending on state laws. 5) The teacher may be liable for receiving stolen property. 6) Arguably reckless endangerment of the students and teacher, brandishing, etc. 7) Aside from the above, the student will undoubtedly be immediately expelled.
In addition his mom (and/or dad, who is never shown) will be vulnerable to criminal attack and may get in trouble for their unsafe storage. If either of the parents are police officers, military, or security, the gun may not even be theirs -- meaning they are in trouble with their jobs, and may be legally charged or fired.
This video is stupid propaganda encouraging kids to do things that will get them in serious legal trouble even if they do not accidentally hurt themselves or those around them.
This puts McCabe in an even more central position regarding pushing the Clinton material into government investigations, undermines Comey's denials of pushing the Steele material into the ICA, and for the first time suggests Obama held an active rather than passive role in pushing the dossier material.
I wrote (and linked) earlier about the evident "hidden hand" behind some of the odd coincidences within the FBI's investigation of the Steele dossier and the Russia Hoax. The quote above brings one more fact into the mix: the Steele dossier itself was not forwarded to FBI HQ initially. Perhaps because Steele's existing handler didn't think it important given Steele's evident political bias. But it was brought to the CH team via a tip from McCabe.
The attack itself was carried out by "Black Israelites", a black anti-semitic group (and not "white nationalists" as sometimes reported). But they had contact information for someone with an Islamic name in "illegal" possession of a number of firearms and ammunition. Now, "illegal" in New Jersey doesn't necessarily mean much. But add in the Islamic name and it gets more interesting, doesn't it?
I didn't intend to see this one in theaters, as a reaction to both Solo (which was so bad it was unwatchable even on Netflix) and The Last Jedi (rented on home streaming months after the theater release). But a friend had an extra ticket they had already bought that was going to go unused, and I was willing to occupy a seat that had already been sold.
My take: Meh. It was better than Solo and The Last Jedi. It was, barely, positive, meaning I enjoyed it if I didn't think too hard about it.
